Quote:
{24:58} O you who have believed, let those whom your right hands possess and those who have not [yet] reached puberty among you ask permission of you [before entering] at three times: before the dawn prayer and when you put aside your clothing [for rest] at noon and after the night prayer. [These are] three times of privacy for you. There is no blame upon you nor upon them beyond these [periods], for they continually circulate among you - some of you, among others. Thus does God make clear to you the verses; and God is Knowing and Wise.

I suggest,
{24:58} O you who have believed, let those whom your right hands possess and those who have not reached puberty among you ask permission of you [before entering] at three times: before the dawn prayer, when you put aside your clothing at noon (for resting) and after the night prayer. Three times of privacy for you. There is no violation upon you nor upon them beyond these [periods], frequenting you - [attending to] each other. Thus does God make clear to you the verses; and God is Omniscient and Wise.

Quote:
{24:59} And when the children among you reach puberty, let them ask permission [at all times] as those before them have done. Thus does God make clear to you His verses; and God is Knowing and Wise.

I suggest,
{24:59} And when the children among you reach puberty, let them ask permission [at all times] as have asked permission those before them. Thus does God make clear to you His verses; and God is Omniscient and Wise.

Quote:
{24:60} And women of post-menstrual age who have no desire for marriage - there is no blame upon them for putting aside their outer garments [but] not displaying adornment. But to modestly refrain [from that] is better for them. And God is Hearing and Knowing.

I suggest,
{24:60} And the sedentary among women who do not desire marriage - there is no violation upon them for putting aside their garments [but] not displaying adornment. But to modestly refrain [from that] is better for them. And God is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.
